Elizabeth Revealed Hardback edition by Lucinda Hawksley
Lucinda Hawksley is an award-winning British author, art historian, lecturer and television presenter. Her books include biographies, social histories and travel guides. She is the great-great-great granddaughter of Charles Dickens and his wife Catherine.
The secrets of Queen Victoria's sixth child, Princess Louise, may be destined to remain hidden forever. She battled with her indomitable mother for permission to practice the `masculine' art of sculpture and go to art college - and in doing so became the first British princess to attend a public school.
Since time immemorial, men have grown, trimmed, shaped and used the hair on their faces to make social, religious and fashion statements. The National Portrait Gallery holds hundreds of images of bearded, whiskered and moustached men (as well as the occasional bearded woman) - images that form the basis of this entertaining and informative pogonographic exploration.
In The Writer Abroad, Lucinda Hawksley takes us on a literary journey around the world, through extracts from Arthur Conan Doyle in Australia, Joseph Conrad in the Congo, Charles Dickens in Italy, Henry James in France, Mary Wollstonecraft in Sweden, and many more.
London is now some 2,000 years old, and for the last thousand has been one of the greatest cities on earth. This book looks at the minutiae of everyday life, as well as the major London events that affected the world.
